Richard and I were so sorry to hear of Lee's passing. He was a loving, caring, gentle giant, and we are better people for having known him.

So saddened to hear of Lee's passing! We met through the landlord association (caha) many years ago. I so loved chatting away with Lee & Kathy...most recently at Sam's Club where I saw the blueprints on their brand new home. Who would have known this was to be our last conversation. Prayers are with you Kathy. RIP Lee!

My boy Ryan went to their daycare and I remember Lee wanting to give Ryan Shawn's hockey gear if he wanted to play hockey! Being a single mom, Lee was always caring and looking out for us! Love you ALL and hurt with you! Love Tina Carney
